How To Prevent From Phishing Emails ????

BE AWARE OF E-MAILS WITH LINK REQUESTS
if you see an official looking communication from Google, Facebook, Amazon,Twitter or any entity, directing you to take action by clicking a link.
but dont click the link without verifying before its scam or not.
HOW TO FIND A FAKE E-MAIL
Fake e-mails look usually spot on, but there’s usually a typo, a mis-spelled word, a contact address that isn’t a google.com or amazon.com home, but instead a webmail address.
And it usually has an address with http:// instead of the more secure HTTPS, which is what the big online firms use. The S stands for secure, by the way.
MOBILE MAKES IT HARDER
In an age where we live on our mobile phones, these fake e-mails are smaller, harder to spot, so you'll need to be alert and take the time for inspection.
Finally, it goes without saying, while we have your attention, that this is a great time to update your passwords with hacker proof collections of numbers, symbols, upper and lower-case letters. Stay away from hacker favorites like "password," 123456" or the name of your street.
